The problem is probably somewhere on your end, since I sent my application
about the same time as you (which was BTW the time of the slink freeze so
the bussiness of the new-maintainer team is more than justified!), but I
became maintainer less than a month after that.
James was kind enough to provide me with details on what did I miss in my
application, however, maybe in your case he (nor Joey) just hasn't had
time to do it. Read the developers reference once again to check what your
new-maintainer application is lacking.
